LGBT Foundation is a Disability Confident Committed Employer and is an Investors in People accredited organisation. We welcome applications from everyone irrespective of sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, ethnicity, faith and religion, disability and age, but, as ethnic minority groups, members of the trans community and religious and faith groups are currently under-represented across the organisation, we would encourage applications from members of these groups. Appointment will be based on merit alone.

Indigo Gender Service Care Navigator Supervisor

The Care Navigator Supervisor will oversee a coordinated approach of essential practical support, non-clinical advice and advocacy to individuals who are accessing or wishing to access the service.


Care Navigator Supervisor

Indigo Gender Service is setting the national standard for a pioneering, localised and person centred primary care led partnership that collaborates with trans, non-binary and gender variant people to reach their full potential.

As this role focuses on working for a service specifically designed by and for trans and non-binary communities, we believe lived experience of being trans and/or non-binary will be hugely valuable to the role. Our values and behaviours are an important part of who we are; so we feel it is essential to get the right people to work with us, so these values need to be as important to you as they are to us

Indigo Statements of Principle

Trans people are the experts of their own experience – our services are trans led, with trans and non-binary people guiding and feeding into them at all levels.

Support is person centred – we recognise that there are as many ways to be trans and non-binary as there are trans and non-binary people in the world and we tailor our support to meet each person’s individual needs.

Care is safe and affirmative – we support trans and non-binary people to be well informed about their choices by sharing knowledge, explaining options, promoting health, and trusting people to make decisions that are right for them.

Knowledge is power – we share our knowledge and best practice with other services, showing leadership and empowering them to better meet the needs of trans communities.

Care is delivered locally – trans and non-binary people are supported to access the full range of assets in their local communities and to maximise their wellbeing.

We take a multidisciplinary approach to care – we bring together knowledge and expertise from different fields and backgrounds to ensure our service delivers the highest quality care to trans communities.

We are taking positive action to encourage applications from people of colour (PoC) and other racially minoritised communities, trans, non-binary and/or older people (aged 50+), to improve the representation of colleagues from these communities across the organisation

* Trans is an umbrella and inclusive term used to describe people whose gender identity differs in some way from that which they were assigned at birth; including non-binary people, people who cross dress, and those who partially or incompletely identify with their sex assigned at birth.

We are open to flexible home working if you are using gender identity services and therefore have regular appointments.
